Mattresses are available in many different materials. With foam, with feathers or perhaps… latex! This material has become increasingly popular in recent years. Not surprising, because it has many advantages for people who want to sleep comfortably. In this blog we take you into the world of natural latex. What is natural latex and why is it so suitable for mattresses? We show it all to you. Are you reading along?

What are natural latex mattresses?

Let's take a step back first. What exactly is latex? Latex is also called rubber. It is a very stretchy and resilient material. It is made from synthetic or natural latex. At Solo Home we always try to work with natural materials as much as possible, so that we can maximize our focus on sustainability and environmentally friendly products. That is why we work with natural latex.

Natural latex is made by harvesting the sap from rubber trees. These trees mainly grow in areas with a tropical climate. Just think of Asia and South America, for example. A small incision is made in the tree bark of the rubber bomb. The milky sap that comes from the tree is collected in a bucket and processed into latex foam.

Dunlop and Talalay

You can process latex in two ways: with the Dunlop and Talalay methods. The biggest difference is in the open cell structure that the Talalay method produces. This makes the latex similar in structure to cold foam, which means it has better climate properties and therefore ventilates well! The Dunlop method is perfect for sleepers who do not get hot easily and do not sweat much at night.

The benefits of natural latex

Natural latex has many advantages. For example, it is a natural product and therefore has an antibacterial and antifungal effect. Wonderfully hygienic! The material is also very flexible, soft and stretchy. And we can tell you: it is really wonderful! A latex mattress offers a lot of support, so it is also suitable for people with back or neck problems. It reduces pressure and supports the spine perfectly. This way you always have good support, whether you sleep on your back, stomach or side! In addition, it is of course a sustainable and eco-friendly choice, which is also important.

The disadvantages of natural latex

Natural latex also has a few disadvantages. It is quite pricey, because it is a natural product. Also, not all latex mattresses are very ventilated, which depends on the way they are made. A traditional latex mattress can sometimes feel a bit warm. Solo Home has the perfect solution for that! We combine a latex mattress with a wonderful layer of foam. This way you can choose the warmer side in winter and still sleep nice and cool in summer!

Additionally, natural latex pillows are naturally hypoallergenic and resistant to dust mites, making them an ideal choice for those with sensitivities or allergies.
